Malkangiri On High alert


As heavy downpour battered several parts of Odisha, rain water submerged many low-lying areas and snapped road connectivity in Malkangiri District on 2 August, officials said.


The Meteorological Centre in Bhubaneswar has forecast heavy downpour in most parts of Odisha in the next few days, as a low pressure area is set to form over the Bay of Bengal on 4 August .

In view of the inclement weather and a flood-like situation triggered by incessant rains, the Malkangiri District Administration is kept on high alert.

Malkangiri District Collector Manish Agarwal is making all arrangements to face any eventuality, said sources.

Entire District Machinery has been kept in High alert to combat any situation emerge from high rains, said an official.

Earlier, Minister Revenue and Disaster Management Sudam Marndi visited the district along with SRC Bishnupada Sethi and were happy to see the arrangements and preparedness in place.

Minister Mr.Marndi expressed satisfaction over readiness of the District Administration of Malkangiri to face the natural disaster.

Looking at the emerging scenario, District Administration has ordered closure of all schools in district for two days, officials say.

With water level rising in several rivers, some bridges in low-lying areas in Kokarkonda, Korkunda and MV-37 were submerged in Malkangiri district.

As a result, road connectivity has been severely affected in many areas including Kalimela, Motu and Padia, Vehicular movement on several roads including Malkangiri-Kalimela and Malkangiri-Balimela have been disrupted as water was flowing over bridges, the Collector said.

The situation is equally grim in Poteru and Pangam areas where some bridges were submerged by rain water snapping road links, another official said.
 
The concerned authorities from panchayat to block level have been asked to remain alert, the collector said, adding adequate food materials have been stocked while shelter centre have also been kept ready.

Arrangements have been made to evacuate people from vulnerable areas to safe centres where ever necessary, while schools have been closed on Friday and Saturday.

"We are fully prepared to deal with any situation. Fire services and ODRAF (Odisha Disaster Rapid Action Force) personnel are ready to swing into action whenever required," Mr.Agarwal said.

Apart from Malkangiri, districts like Nabarangpur, Rayagada and Koraput were also lashed by heavy rains.

Malkangiri has received an average rainfall of 115.86 mm during last 24 hours, an official said.

Barely four days ago, many parts of Malkangiri were marooned as torrential rain inundated vast areas.

Meanwhile, Met Office forecast heavy downpour in most parts of Odisha in the next few days, as a low pressure area is set to form over the Bay of Bengal.

The low pressure area, likely to form over northeast Bay of Bengal by August 4, will trigger rainfall in districts like Kalahandi, Nabarangpur, Koraput, Malkangiri and Mayurbhanj and the intensity will increase from Friday, it said.

On August 3 and 4, heavy rainfall is also expected in Bhadrak, Keonjhar, Kendrapara, Jagatsinghpur, Ganjam, Puri, Kalahandi, Kandhamal, Balasore and Bhadrak districts.

Thereafter, several parts of Jajpur, Mayurbhanj, Bhadrak, Kendrapara, Kalahandi, Keonjhar, Dhenkanal, Balasore, Nabarangpur, Jagatsinghpur, Khurda, Sambalpur, Deogarh and Sonepur districts will experience heavy to very heavy rainfall till August 6, the MeT office said.

Under the influence of the system, high velocity winds are likely to sweep coastal and adjoining districts of Odisha.

Fishermen have been advised not to venture into the sea along and off the coast and adjoining central Bay of Bengal on August 4 and 5, it said.

The catchment areas of rivers like Mahanadi, Brahmani, Baitarani, Budhabalanga and Subarnarekha may receive heavy precipitation between August 3 and 6.

As most parts of Odisha received rainfall in the last few days, the quantum of rainfall deficit in the state has come down to 17.7 per cent from around 32 per cent recorded on July 24, officials said.
